DON POLYE PROMISES K300 MILLION FOR OIL PALM FARMERS IN WEST NEW BRITAIN

Triumph Heritage Empowerment (THE) party led government after the election will invest K300 million in West New Britain's oil palm sector.

Opposition Leader Don Polye said today that of this K50 million would be used to establish its price stabilisation fund.

Mr Polye has promised a K500 million to revive all the vocational colleges around the country to skill the youths.

According to Polye, National Agriculture and Research Institute and other similar institutions will be resourced to support the agriculture sector with science, research and technology.

He said he had earlier promised K2.26 billion for agriculture and livestock sectors.

The break-up is as follows:

1. Autonomous Region of Bougainville will get K500 million for cocoa and copra, and their stabilisation funds;
2.East New Britain will receive K500 million for cocoa and copra, and their stabilisation fund;
3. K200 million for livestock;
4.K200 for vegetable import substitution;
5. K250 million for oil palm in Markham valley and;
6. Upper and lower Highland regions will get K700 million for coffee.

"Prime Minister and my other critics may ask me where will I get K2.26 billion to fund this project?

"Well, I will sell off the state's 10.1 per cent share in Oil Search Limited and, abolish five departments and the chief secretary's position to save over K4 billion to fund these program," he told a cheering crowd.

He stated that fighting corruption would also play a major role in recouping that K4 billion via proceeds of crime.

Polye further said his key focus would be on agriculture and human development.

He stated said he would simultaneously skill the majority of the youths with technical know-how to earn a living, adding the agriculture sector will absorb the graduates for employment.

"Our youths will no longer be job seekers like you see today. Looking for jobs will be a thing of the past. You must trust me on this. I will provide many opportunities for them," he said.
